Nicholas is pretty excited about Christmas vacation. He has been counting down the days until "no more school"! To celebrate, his class had a big party Friday. They played a game of Christmas bingo and Nicholas won!
There were several different stations around the room for the children to participate in activities. Nicholas started with making a Christmas-themed picture frame.
Then he colored a pre-printed wooden door hanger.
He decorated his own Christmas cookie....lots and lots of icing, sprinkles, and chocolate chips!
After the party, we all went to get our H1N1 vaccines (not a fun follow-up to a party, I know!). This season, Nicholas has become terrified of shots. He's now had three shots this season, one regular flu and two H1N1, and each time we have to plead and struggle and sometimes hold him down to get through it. I was glad to have Stuart with us today to help. Afterwards we all needed a little treat so we stopped at Marble Slab Creamery on the way home.
Nicholas was showing off the gummy bears that he found buried in his ice cream.
Even Rachel got to enjoy some yummy ice cream. Daddy always gets the yummiest so she only wanted to share his. She wouldn't even give mine a try!
Who doesn't love ice cream?!
